Your gift to the University Library is a direct investment in the spaces, resources, and services that we provide every day. With your help, the library supports student success by enhancing the student experience with innovative and flexible learning and study spaces, such as the new wall gallery that will showcase university, state and regional history as well as the work of our faculty, staff, and students.


The new Library Gallery Space, funded by your contributions, will enable new opportunities for learning by creating a purpose-built space for innovative engagement. The new gallery space will support local and global exploration and research, and offer experiential involvement with physical elements from our Special Collections and Archives department as well as traveling exhibits. The Library Gallery Space will facilitate more connections with local arts and tourism in Idaho, and allow participation in local arts events, connecting the University Library with local outreach.


Your gift during Vandal Giving Day will help us unlock matching gifts provided by the Library Advisory Board and others. These much-needed funds will enable us to build our capacity as Idaho's only research library.


Your financial support allows us to grow, explore and commit to our vision of supporting student success across the curriculum, and building a world-class research library for our university community.
